Le Monde.fr | • Mis à jour le | Par Samuel Laurent Le gouvernement français doit présenter, mercredi 17 juin, un plan visant à améliorer la prise en charge des demandeurs d'asile et à mieux lutter contre l'immigration irrégulière.

Affirmative Reaction. Racial Inequality Without Racism: An Interview with Nancy DiTomaso. Nancy DiTomaso is Professor of Management and Global Business at Rutgers Business School—Newark and New Brunswick.
She is also the author of our latest book, The American Non-Dilemma , which provides a comprehensive examination of the persistence of racial inequality in the post-Civil Rights era and how it plays out in today's economic and political context. Q: Let’s start with the title of your book, a reference to the landmark text by Gunnar Myrdal , The American Dilemma .

Romney’s pollsters published their initial thoughts on Nov. 12. Two days later, Romney and his chief pollster issued a postmortem report to his campaign donors on a pair of conference calls.
This week, we got another review from Romney’s polling firm, an op-ed from his senior strategist, and a follow-up interview on CBS. Affirmative Action - News - Times Topics. Romney Is President. Barack Obama And The Death Of Normal. I was on an airplane last night as the election was decided.

U.S. Moves Toward 'Majority Minority' Number of "Majority-Minority" States Grows. Dateline: August 2005 The U.S. Census Bureau reports that Texas has now joined Hawaii, New Mexico and California as "majority-minority" state, in which the combined population of minorities exceeds the majority population.
According to July 1, 2004, population estimates, Texas had a minority population of 11.3 million, comprising 50.2 percent of its total population of 22.5 million. In comparison, 77 percent of Hawaii’s population was minority. In New Mexico and California, the proportions were 57 percent and 56 percent, respectively, while the District of Columbia was 70 percent minority. The Census Bureau considers the minority population to include all people except non-Hispanic single-race whites. Five states — Maryland, Mississippi, Georgia, New York and Arizona — are next in line with minority populations of about 40 percent.
